Hello all, I would like to share this simple but delicious brunch or lunch style recipe.  It is a slightly adapted recipe, with my own pistachio dukkah by Rachel from Two Loves Studio who writes a monthly column for one of my all time favourite blogs decor8.  I adore Rachel’s approach to food photography and styling, fresh, clean and most inspiring!

As a vegetarian I am a huge fan of pulses, so love experimenting with various hummus ideas, which are a perfect partner to homemade crusty bread!  This Spring inspired Edamame Avocado hummus caught my eye  and so was keen to try it out.  I have to say I was most impressed with the combination and balance of flavours.  With the addition of pistachio dukkah both for spice and texture and not forgetting those little jewel like pink radishes for colour and that extra crunch.

Nourish your skin this Spring… with an Aromatherapy Facial and receive 10% off!

img_0972

With the days suddenly becoming longer and the first signs of Spring peaking through, I think Spring is in the air!  It’s the season for growth, renewal and change; a time to replenish and revive the body and mind, making way for the new and leaving behind the old.  It’s also an opportunity to take on new challenges, changing routines and taking some quiet and reflective time to nurture ourselves.

Therefore what a perfect time to take stock of what changes are necessary in order to improve our own quality of life; in terms of taking regular relaxation.  I think we all will agree that looking after our wellbeing and taking care of ourselves, has become increasingly important, due to many of us leading busier lifestyle’s!

‘Spring clean your skin with a nourishing facial’

With this in mind, how does a nourishing aromatherapy facial sound?  Using a bespoke blend of facial oils to renew, restore and rejuvenate the skin with the added comfort of hot facial towels.  This facial treatment also includes a hand/arm and scalp massage, while the mask is doing its magic!!

So if you feel like your skin is lacking lustre and in much need of a pick-me-up from the drying winter conditions, then this treatment is your answer to a fresh glowing complexion.  Of course it also has the added benefit of providing complete relaxation, inducing calmness within the body and mind.  So make your wellbeing the main priority for the year ahead and kindly schedule some ‘time to yourself’!

Bespoke Aromatherapy Facial – offer valid until 23rd March 2017

Invigorate the senses… Rosemary essential oil

rosemary-283098_1920

Hi everyone, this month I shall delve into the herbaceous world of Rosemary.  A wonderful refreshing fragrance renown for it’s uplifting and stimulating properties.  We are all very familiar with the pungent aroma of Rosemary and it’s amazing flavour when used in cooking.

Within the world of aromatherapy Rosemary is one of the most common and widely used essential oils, originating from the Mediterranean coast.  It is steam distilled from the leaves and flowering tops and one whiff of this wonderful oil is enough to invigorate the senses!

It brings a whole range of benefits, from boosting concentration to relieving muscular tension and treating scalp conditions.  Rosemary has a strong, clear, refreshing fragrance, with herbal and medicinal notes.

During this time of year we can find ourselves sluggish and in much need of a boost.  This is a time when we are more susceptible to colds, coughs and various viral infections.  Therefore, Rosemary makes is an excellent choice of oil to use in energising the body and invigorating the mind.

Whenever your feeling mentally fatigued, try placing a few drops on a tissue, inhale! The invigorating aroma will instantly lift the spirits and renew mental clarity!

Due to its pain relieving properties it helps in easing rheumatic pains and an excellent  oil to use in massage, for tired and over worked muscles, especially sports and fitness enthusiasts.  It also works well in treating headaches and nerve pain, such as neuralgia.

Rosemary is a good heart tonic, stimulating blood flow, improving circulation and normalising low blood pressure.  However, it should be noted as it is a highly stimulating oil it is not suitable for those with epilepsy, high blood pressure and best avoided in pregnancy.

It is a very valuable oil for respiratory conditions, acting as a good decongestant, helping to assist with throat congestion, colds, flu and used for conditions such as; asthma and chronic bronchitis.

I have a personal oil blend I like to use when feeling congested or when blogging and just need some mental clarity!   The combination of oils works in perfect harmony, stimulating the senses and clearing the head!

 Add 2 drops each of Rosemary, Lemon and Peppermint to a diffuser or oil burner and enjoy the aroma!

Rosemary is also  beneficial in aiding digestive problems, helping to relieve flatulaence, constipation, bloating and detoxifying for the liver.

Lastly, its stimulating action is said to be beneficial in treating scalp conditions and  promoting hair growth.  Try massaging the scalp with rosemary essential oil  to help nourish the scalp, removing dandruff and to strengthen the hair.

Blends well with: Basil, Cedarwood, Frankincense, Geranium, Ginger, Grapefruit, Lemon, Orange and Peppermint.
